COVID-19 Patient Impact Fund

Match Challenge to raise $100,000

Cancer hasn’t stopped impacting those we love, so we will continue working towards providing the best outcomes for our patients.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges for everyone especially at Karmanos Cancer Institute. We're faced with increased costs for personal protective equipment (PPE), cleaning and sanitation efforts, and the expansion of our telehealth services. Since March, the virus has tripled the cost to treat one cancer patient in Michigan.

Despite those additional expenses, cancer hasn’t stopped impacting our community and Karmanos' work to save lives. Our frontline health care workers are heroically and compassionately providing care for patients battling cancer each and every day. Your gift today to the COVID-19 Patient Impact Fund will remind our patients that they are not alone in their cancer journey - Karmanos is still here in the fight against cancer.

Listen to Justin Klamerus, M.D., MMM, president of Karmanos Cancer Hospital & Network, explain the importance of the Patient Impact Fund.
